Rocky Top General Store is known for its rustic and nostalgic pieces, and comments from customers about the Harriman business’ canning products has inspired a class on the classic Southern method of preserving food.

“We just had so many people coming in that wanted to learn how to can and don’t know how,” said Debbie Mee of Rocky Top General Store.

Mee said the free class will be June 8.

A University of Tennessee Extension agent will be providing the class, which will be informational.

No demonstration on canning will be given.

Mee said five people have already signed up for the class, which is limited to 20 people.

If it goes well, Mee said they’ll look into hosting the event again.

To register for the class, call the store at 882-8867.
